Nathan, November 3, 2019

Wonderful shop - it was such a pleasure to find a knowledgeable shopkeeper who is enthusiastic about the products she sells. She was spot on about what would be best to bring to a nursing home for sharing, considering all the delicious options. I will definitely be back!!!

Nancy, October 28, 2019

I enjoyed using my nift gift at Spindler Confections, which is a very cute neighborhood shop with specialty sweets. I would certainly visit again (even without a nift gift!).

Ellen, October 27, 2019

Spindler was a real treat. I knew the chocolate would be good, but I had never been to the store. I would definitely go back when buying gifts.

Mary, October 23, 2019

Cute little place!

Becky, October 16, 2019

Tasty chocolate and great service

Marianna, October 12, 2019

Chocolate Heaven! Spindler Confections is a wonderfully aromatic and tasty oasis among some of the new stores along Massachusetts Avenue. Many of the chocolates with their label are made right in the store. While I wanted to get one of everything they had, I decided to get a small sampler of seven chocolates and one extra for me alone ... Delicious! Oh, so many chocolates, so little time. Yes, I would recommend Spindler Confections to friends.

Delicious chocolate!

Emily, September 23, 2019

This is such a cute shop!! It’s a perfect place to pick up gifts or the occasional. Also I feel not much can beat freshly made chocolates, they’re so soft and delicate. I would much prefer getting a fresh batch here versus Royce or Teuscher ( Swiss but not as fresh) chocolates.

La, September 22, 2019

Awesome chocolates and people! It was my first time in and was made to feel like an old friend. Can’t wait to go back!

Abigail, January 16, 2017

Thanks so much for the Nift Gift, which was VERY convenient to redeem as the shop is around the corner from where I live! I had a wonderful time talking with Jeremy Spindler, the owner of the business, and browsing in a leisurely way around all the merchandise before making my choice. I used my gift for a custom selection of housemade chocolates and made a great connection in my own neighborhood. I followed up with a visit to Curio, the spice shop a couple of doors down!

Susan, January 9, 2017

We got some delicious treats at a candy store I didnt realize was in our neighborhood. The cherry cordials were amazing!

Peter, January 7, 2017

lovely owners

Eileen, January 4, 2017

Spindler's was great. So happy to have found a local shop and meet the owner/confectioner P.S. Trying to rate him a 5, but it seems that none of the buttons are able to remain selected. While Nift is a great idea there seems to be WAY TOO MUCH technology.

Michelle, January 4, 2017

wonderful experience! service was great and all the free samples were a nice welcome into the store! Caramels are amazing

Jessica, December 4, 2016

amazing dark chocolate!!
